Grilled steak, blue cheese and bacon make my crescents some of the heartiest, most satisfying starters you'll ever eat. I roll up the filling in wedges of refrigerated pie pastry. —Kelly Williams, Forked River, New Jersey
When I found this recipe, I was planning a party and thought it might be fun, different salsa to set out with chips. It was an absolute success. People love the garlic, corn and avocado combination.

Our college-age daughter, two of her friends and a nephew ate a quart of this salsa with chips in one sitting. They loved it so much that they each took a quart home with them. So be sure to make lots! —Carol Carpenter, Jansen, Nebraska
The recipe for this creamy, chili-like dish was passed down through our church years ago. It's so warm and filling that we often prepare it when we take skiing trips to Colorado. It can be served over corn chips and eaten with a fork...or kept warm in a slow cooker and served as a hearty dip at parties.

These easy appetizers are always a hit at parties! Zesty strips of chicken and bits of onion sit in jalapeno halves that are wrapped in bacon and grilled. Serve them with blue cheese or ranch salad dressing for dipping.
